Drinky Crow Comes to Seattle!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony MillionaireFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 28 Apr 2009 11:17 AM

TONY MILLIONAIRE PRESENTS DRINKY CROW'S MAAKIES TREASURY AT FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKSTORE & GALLERY ON MAY 9

April 27, 2009 - SEATTLE, WA. Celebrated cartoonist Tony Millionaire will appear at Seattle's Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery on Saturday, May 9 for an exhibition of original artwork and signing of his new book Drinky Crow's Maakies Treasury.

Millionaire's Maakies is among the best and most popular weekly comic strips in America, running in over a dozen of the largest U.S. weekly newspapers including the Village Voice, L.A. Weekly and Seattle's The Stranger. The strip has also been adapted into the hit animated series The Drinky Crow Show on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

Maakies chronicles the intoxicating high-seas adventures of alcoholic corvid Drinky Crow and his equally-inebriated simian sidekick Uncle Gabby, blending vaudeville-style humor and a magnificent rendering quality that recalls the glory days of the American comic strip. Designed by publishing's foremost graphic artist Chip Kidd, with an introduction by acclaimed author Dave Eggers, Drinky Crow's Maakies Treasury collects the second five years of the strip in a deluxe landscape hardcover format that complements the strip's classic style. According to the New York Times Book Review, "Millionaire is the closest thing we have to George Herriman of Krazy Kat."

Millionaire's appearance on Saturday May 9, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM will include an exhibition highlighting 10 years of original Maakies strips, complemented by a screening of episodes of the animated Drinky Crow Show. The artist will be available to sign copies of his many books and informally discuss his influential body of work. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street at the corner of Airport Way S., just minutes south of downtown. This event coincides with the festive Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack featuring visual and performing arts presentations in dozens of locations throughout the historic arts community. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.

More pretty, pretty books & comics. Sadly I failed to get a photo of Dame Darcy when she was at our table, especially since she was resplendent and colorful in a fancy turquoise dress.

So, this year's Stumptown Comics Fest was a-hoppin' on Saturday when I was there. Stumptown has cemented a place in my heart as my favorite comics show. Personal highlights this year:

1: Meeting and talking to T. Edward Bak, who showed me his gorgeous original pages for the story which begins serialization in the next issue of Mome. He's doing the pages in a sketchbook and they'll actually be printed larger than actual size. He also told me about the grant he received [correction!] has applied for (hope I didn't just jinx it!) to adapt the story into an online educational resource and introduced me to his intern (!) -- go man go!

2. Finding a lot of really talented young cartoonists I hadn't heard of before, meeting some whom I'd heard of but hadn't seen much of their work, buying stuff from them. I do most of my comics shopping at cons, so I went a little splurge-happy. I found some pretty exciting and interesting stuff and can't wait to start digging into my haul.

3. More shopping at such fine concerns as Little Otsu (new Lilli Carré book!) and the ever-reliable Sparkplug (several excellent-looking comics and, finally, the Renee French t-shirt I've been wanting for years but they never had in my size until now).

4. It's always nice to see those familiar con faces and say howdy. Comics people are good people.

5. 14 awesome new Yodas in the Yoda sketchbook (not scanned yet). I saw Douglas Wolk's sketchbook making the rounds too, and I can't wait for him to post his scans.

I'm sure there's more that I'm forgetting. Many thanks to the Stumptown organizers and volunteers for putting on a swell show. I'm already looking forward to next year.

Gahan Wilson news: Neil Gaiman team-up; docu & talk
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videoNeil GaimanGahan Wilsonevents 14 Apr 2009 11:48 AM

Before we get to the announcement below (which explains the video above), we have some related information of our own to tout: Neil Gaiman will be providing one of two introductions to Gahan Wilson: 50 Years of Playboy Cartoons, our mammoth three-volume slipcased set coming this fall. (The other introduction: Hugh Hefner. Stay tuned for more info about this release in tomorrow's "Fall 09 - Winter 10 Preview" post!)

And now, from The New Yorker, a must-attend event:

This Friday night at 7, the Morgan Library & Museum will hold a special screening of “Gahan Wilson: Born Dead, Still Weird,” a documentary, directed by Steven-Charles Jaffe, about the life and work of the New Yorker cartoonist of the gleefully macabre bent. Wilson and the director will be on hand for a Q. & A. after the screening (which is being presented in conjunction with the museum’s exhibition “On The Money: Cartoons for The New Yorker”). Meanwhile, we have some new work by Wilson: he illustrated this short animated adaptation (also directed by Jaffe) of “It Was a Dark and Silly Night,” a story by Neil Gaiman...
